Not a bad storm at all on this side. Ended up going out around 8 last night just after the heavy stuff started to fall. I just opened everyone up early so if the switch over came I would be pushing 6 to 8 of slop. By the time I went out we already had about 4 inches. Met up with a buddy that was rippin it up on his sled and he ended up hoping in with me. Then ended up breaking the king pin bolt at 3:15am, good thing he's got a garage that's set up pretty good and we got a bolt back in her. I pushed till 4:30 then came back home to get a few hours of sleep. Picked my shoveler up around 8 and got to doing the 2nd round making everything nicey nice. I ended up breaking that king pin bolt again and had to make a trip to the next town over and got the right part, wasted 1.5 hours right there. Over all not a bad storm. The rear breaks started to make some noise at the end so I guess it's time to change them. 8.5 hours last night and 10 hours today and the best part of this day??? I came home to the Wife making Pancakes and Bacon for dinner Thumbs Up

Kart,
Any thoughts on Boston for Tuesday? And are there any official today snowtotals for Boston/Cambridge/Medford areas?

All I know is what I did. I wasn't pushing any huge snowfalls, not sure how much you got. When it was snowing the powder didn't make a difference, and when it rained It was a none issue.

My area got around 6-8. We got the dry slot around midnight then it started to mix with sleet, 1:06am, and lasted till 3:45am. Heavy sleet from 3:45am to 4:30am. Yeah I write all that stuff down. But there is no way in hell my little truck was going anywhere in 2 wheel drive. Matter of fact I had to drop it into 4low on one driveway that's kind of steep this afternoon

I haven't the slightest idea as to what's going to happen on Tuesday man. After I get done eating and maybe play some grab azz with the wife :nod: I'll have a look. Storm totals for you IDK My buddy subscribes to a weather service that gives him totals for CT only. I'll keep an eye open for you if I seen any floating around but I'd go dig on the NWS site

You see I have no driveways that are hills at all really. I just push in with some momentum and then I'm golden. I hit everything at 3", then at 6" just before the change over. Did a few in the rain. Then I spent the rest of the rainy morning helping to clear the parking lot at my work. I wasn't much of a help there but I was able to get the right stuff pulled out for them.

Just finished plowing. Fisher joy stick crapped out on one truck at 4am. Only place open only had a fishstick in stock $$$. Other than that, things went pretty smoothly. Now time to get some shut eye and out at midnight to throw 4 tons of magic down.

Long Range for Jan is warm but if you go back and look at the first few pages of this thread you'll see that I post the long rage in Oct and it showed Dec being warm for a few months. We all know how that turned out

90 per ton p/u in plainville or blackstone ma & 110 for magic in Ashland ma

I think $110 is the going rate for straight salt around here now, 2 years ago I was paying $67/ton and I've had to compromise my prices with customers for the increase but it's not as profitable as it should for me now. Not to mention my trailer is out of commission that I usually store 5 tons in so I gotta get it by the pick up truck load. Where is the place in plainville?

I got some imitation magic for 142/ton because I didn't get my delivery yet and it is the only other place around (that I know of). That crap froze solid to my conveyor chain over night! Shoveling 2 tons of salt out of a spreader really isn't fun. Lesson learned...

They really don't know. Its the type of system that could draw moisture from the ocean and give us 5" or just drop 1". Banding may also set up, but who knows where. That's why its 1-5"

I heard last night that this was the type of system that gave us the blizzard of 78. It was supposed to be a few inch clipper that got blocked.

snapped the front driveshaft on the 1ton plow/sander

dont ya just love salt?

A nice aspect of snow is that it covers all the crap behind my shop...until I need to find something

I dont know what we got on the 495/90 intersection but it felt like a foot while it was coming down

I plow a restaurant along with a large commercial complex.

Last nite 65+ guys from the neighboring complex showed up for dinner @ 9:00pm with trucks, loaders, backhoes,etc. You think they could of dropped a blade on the way out?

It was 11:30 before all the staff left...and not even any leftovers..or cerbezza (sp?)

I'm not concerned with Jan temps at all. The normal temp for Hartford CT is right around 36 deg. Now if TWC is using 36 deg and they are seeing temps at 37 they will say Jan will be warmer than average. Every weather person will say that but they will not say what the normal temp is. What we are going into right now if what's called reload it happens all the time, the warm temps on the way. I'm still see the bigger Mets that I follow say we will see cold shots coming down from the north with a active Southern Jet Stream. Basically cold then warm , cold then warm. The big thing is when do we see a -NAO that will help us get them big storms? I'm also seeing 2 big Mets still say we see a Big one in Feb. Remember this is As of Now. Will it work out?? Who knows but that's the word around the water cooler

Right. I never got to the tranny cooler so I'll do that tomorrow. I'll probably drop the pan and do the filter to and I might as well change the oil seeing how I'm going this far. I hope no one stops by so I can bang it out , unlike today.

I would be more than willing to upgrade suspension, brakes and axels. Even reinforce points in the frame if needed. More concerned with the tranny. Im trying to build a purpose built mini salt unit I can use on my route. It is the perfect size, just not outfit properly stock. Full size pickups are not an option, and I have have been thoroughly disappointed with TG spreaders, otherwise I'd use one on one of the jeeps.

I plow with a standard now, and have pretty much mastered the art. I actually enjoy it.
As far as getting it certed, didn't even cross my mind, but is a great point.

I mod jeeps on a regular basis, and can make them do things safely way past what they were ever intended to do. I imagine I could do the same to a ranger. But I do agree, the automatic transmission will probably always be a weak point.

Did a pretty good road trip today on the moped. 72 miles. Doesn't even feel like winter out there. Lots of rain tomorrow. Should be able to get all the summer equipment winterized and put away.

Back in the summer my cousin and i borrowed his buddies mopeds and we did around 75 miles throughout the eastern ct side. From Colchester to Old Lyme up threw Niantic and back. Its actually pretty fun messing around on them.

Yeah I had a pretty good time today. They are especially fun to ride when they are bored way out with a lot of mods and can do about 60... So I did have a very good time today:nod:

Here she is by the way, my sleeper of a moped. Ive taken it to a few of the kart tracks around and ran some laps, 2 speed auto is less than ideal but I have a swap for a 3 speed ktm that I plan on doing some time in the future

Current Conditions
The daily AO index is constructed by projecting the daily (00Z) 1000mb height anomalies poleward of 20°N onto the loading pattern of the AO. Please note that year-round monthly mean anomaly data have been used to obtain the loading pattern of the AO (Methodology). Since the AO has the largest variability during the cold season, the loading pattern primarily captures characteristics of the cold season AO pattern.

The daily AO index and its forecasts using GFS and Ensemble mean forecast data are shown for the previous 120 days as indicated. Each daily value has been standardized by the standard deviation of the monthly AO index from 1979-2000.

long range accuweather for the 1-3-14 calling for 4.5 inches of snow.

Hopefully it happens during the day and I can get some pictures and video of the new V plow in action.

Everyone have a Merry Christmas.

Also, Kart. What would you think of running a .75yd stainless electric vbox in the back of a ranger single cab 3.0V6 Automatic with a 6.9 steel fisher given that the vbox will fit properly?

Like other have said it will probably be too much weight. I have a one jack ass powered sander , me :laughing: I do nothing but driveways and one small lot at a package store

Kart, when is the next possible storm?

January 1st?


I'm still watching the 27-28 but as of now that slides OTS , out to sea. Things look to be heading towards the good for us. GFS still has the 31-1 system and is also showing something for the 3rd now

Its been on the money for short range. Long range is another story.
Everything can change in the space of a few days.
Along with Kart and Bbc you get a pretty accurate indicator of what's coming

This is a copy and paste from my FB page.

I hope everyone enjoyed the warmer then normal temps over the last few days, cuz the train is about to hit a Brick Wall. Temps for the next 7 days will be floating around the mid to upper 30's. This coming Sunday does look like it gets into the mid to upper 40's, then the Polar Vortex drops down into the country putting us back into the Ice Box. We have a very good chance at seeing temps in the single digits for a high starting around the 4th of January. Long Range is looking good for storms. Remember it's Long Rage and there no way we can say that these are going to happen 12/31, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/19, 1/24, 1/31

Also another thing worth mentioning during this next cold shot is that the PNA goes + and we will see a -AO and -NAO. Yeah you don't know what they are but this is a perfect set up for a chance at storms. The MJO is also heading towards 7. Get ready for a very active January.

Crap! My truck with the spreader was in the shop today and they didn't finish. Looks like I'm loading up the 3/4 ton and walking around with the push spreader. I'll have to go out real early so no one sees me and laughs :)

You might not even have to go out. It's done here in central CT and with the cold front pushing in it will soon be over for the whole region. I have a 5mph wind and that should help with drying. Intellcast has me at 32 at 1am dropping to 27 at 6am. Now factor in the warmth we had over the last 4 days. Ground temp I'm sure is up there. I'd say small chance we see any major icing. There might be a spot or two but I'd still check them in the morning

This is the first time I've ever said this, but I sure hope I don't have to go out tomorrow.
